Both me and the other guitarist in my band have or had this amp. You can get some great tones out of this amp, the modeling preamp section is great for dialing in the sound you want and the effects are decent... I really like some of the delays and reverbs on there. Despite having nicer ambs and cabs available for use now, I still like to use this amp for recording because of some of the tones you can dial in with it.My 2 biggest complaints with this are first: they're 120 watt power rating is a HUGE stretch. I play through a Fender Frontman 212 100 watt combo now and at 4 volume the Fender is louder than the Behringer can get tapped at 10. Put this amp next to any other amp 75 watt and above and volume-wise this thing gets stomped into the ground. We've used these amps for shows a lot of times and you can use them in a small club with the volume cranked.. But at a gig of any size or for bigger outdoor shows you have to mic it to have it not get lost next to the drums, pa, etc.. My second complaint is that to play this at gig volumes (cranked up) you can't keep the feedback under control on the distortion channel and I don't use a ton of gain, I usually turn the gain to about 5 or 6 and there is still a ton of feedback.Overall I do think this is a good amp particularly for recording because of the tones you can get from it. But if you do a lot of shows or shows of any size you will quickly get frustrated with the output of this thing.

Very nice looking amp.I like that all the corners have metal guards on them it's well built the sound is kind of muddy but when you turn it up it gets better. Lets face it for this kind of money your not going to get a sound like a Fender or other fine amp. but again for the money you can't go wrong! It's not bad, good speakers make a deference too I'm using two fender sc112 a great speaker!

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

Got the Amp at great price on sale. Very surprised how loud it was, hooked up to my home made 212 cab. Channels, f/x everything works great, gain is flat no screaming, but I've got a pedal problem solved. This is a great amp for practice, jamming, small gigs or auditorium. Cant go wrong with this Amp!

        Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

        You really can't go wrong for the price. This inexpensive amp seems to be built really solid and it gets a great heavy metal tone (the only sound I need). It has a built in tuner and a free footswitch that changes the channels and the effects. When it said it had presets I thought it had preset sounds like a new Line6 but only the effects have presets which are tweakable so it's not bad. It has every possible connection you could imagine on the back and it is decent for recording using the stereo line outs. The biggest problem with this amp is it doesn't have much volume. I have been using guitar amps for over 40 years and it becomes clear after a while that wattage of solid state and tube amps can't be compared, typically a solid state 100 watt amp is half as loud as a 50 watt tube amp. I have a new Line 6 HD 150 head and it is way louder than this Vtone amp but it does have nice sustaining metal sounds and would be okay at home which is all I would use it for, can't complain too much for the price of it.

              For the price how can you complain. Loud/chunky and distorted when set that way and clean too. Where was this head when I was 16. I pick up my guitars about once a week just to mess around. Was concerned about the item when I ordered it because it was so inexpensive , but it is well made. Produces the sounds I'm looking for out of the box.
              So far very pleased

              Ok when they work

              Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

              I ordered 2 Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H Heads for a rock band class I teach, with a limited budget to complete a backline. For the price they are not bad at all, loud enough to keep up through one cabinet to a complete band. The built in effects are good but limited on making adjustments to parameters, basically you chose the effect and can only adjust the level/mix.Good for someone working on a budget, however 1 of the 2 amps I ordered now seems to be malfunctioning only after a couple months despite not being abused, pushed or not properly taken care of. One of the output channels is now making a terrible loud hissing noise, totally unplayable, while the second output works, but there is a noticeable when put to a clean setting, almost like there is a flange effect, only it just sounds bad and I cant get rid of it. So I gave the quality a low rating, great to find something this cheap that does the job, but if it malfunctions after a few months, it makes one question the quality and reliability.

              Not what I expected

              Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

              I've owned behringer vamp2 and vamp pro. I though I was getting the same great features that I got with my previous processors with a built-in 120w head. It only has 2 channels as the description said. This is not user friendly to those who want to just plug the head into a midi board.

              Honest review.

              Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

              I got this head with the matching cabinet last january. ive been using it live almost every week up until this november, loud volumes and different styles. okay, the cabinet is amazing, best one ive played through, but thats another story. i really like this head because i dont use many effects, but its got plenty and you can adjust them as you please, and since there are two channels, you can assign one to each. the different amp modes are really really effective and versatile, i can go between a sweet clean, dirty, raunchy, heavy, bright, muddy, crisp, full, thin, whatever tone. i can easily get a tone similar to that of AFI's Jade Puget from the All Hallows EP/Art of Drowning. It's pretty loud, Ive only mic'd it maybe 3 times out of the million ive played in front of 40+people with a loud drummer and bass. for the money, its great, it truly is. to sum it up, cheap, reliable, versatile, amazing.

              not bad

              By 

              from LAFAYETTE

              Comments about Behringer V-Tone GMX 1200H 2x60W Guitar Amp Head:

              The amp is loud if you know how to tweek the effects. With on board distortion I only had it up to maybe 4 or 5 which is not bad. And thats without feed back. It was purty damn loud. My effects loop dosnt work worth a damn though. And the volume knob on channel one broke off but, I just super glued it back. The eq sucks so you need to get a rack eq or a pedal. Once again on mine the effects loop sucks but maybe im doing somthing wrong. I like all the inputs and outputs on the back. makes it easy to run it thru ur pc and record. I love this little amp regardless of the negatives I've listed. It's bargain priced for someone who aint got the funds. It does the job if you take the time to learn how to use it.
